Cop wounds lunging dog

A Montrose police officer shot a pit bull Monday morning after the pit bull and another dog allegedly charged at the officer when he got out of his patrol car on an unrelated case in the Cimarron Creek area off 65.30 Road, according to Police Chief Tom Chinn.

The bullet grazed the pit bull’s back, and the two dogs — the other was uninjured — reportedly ran home, where the officer found the owner, 47-year-old Dedera Crockett.

Crockett was ticketed on suspicion of two counts of having a dangerous animal, two counts of a dog running at large, two counts of failing to license a dog, and exceeding the limit on the number of dogs allowed by a homeowner in Montrose, Chinn said.

The pit bull will be fine, and the officer was uninjured, Chinn added.
